Really fun gimmick vine needle. Shoutouts to the music loop being the worst and most painful music loop I've ever heard in a fangame, it's so abrupt and out of place i hate it so much.

Vine Journey is a fun two-stage needle gimmick with a heavy Celeste theme to it, utilising two particular stages from the game and some appropriate gimmicks to complement it.

I found the platforming to flow pretty well. No jumps really feel overly precise or awkward, and the balance in general makes the gameplay experience feel very smooth which always goes a long way in needle games. The production value is also nicely done, and I particularly liked the first stage (which I really wish was longer compared to the goliath that the second stage was in length).

I did find the ending of the final save to feel a little cheap given how long the save was, and you can't really see ahead to know where you need to be flying to avoid the spike blocks. The speed vines also felt a little difficult to immediately spot in the second stage, due to the contrast between their sprites and the tileset.

It's worth a play for sure if you're looking for a quick bite of needle with some nice polish and production value scattered throughout. I hope to see Ian do more stuff of this style in the future, particularly with the dynamic platforming featured in the first stage.

Lots of annoying jumps and nothing that hasn't been done before to make up for them. Last save killing you with shit you can't see off the top of the screen is also not great.

Good gimmick vine needle featuring the nanc engine vines.
There's not too much to complain about here, the usage of the vines is clever and fun and the celeste themed visuals are nice. The one main thing i could see as a potential issue is that the game doesn't ease you into the vines, so if you've never seen them you might struggle. I also felt that there wasn't much progression, you get a screen that feels like a stage end, but it isn't visually/musically. It isn't that big a deal, just a nitpick.
The game is fun and i can recommend playing it.
